The global community now has the tools to meaningfully address new HIV infections; however, HIV is on the rise in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA).
To address the challenges in EECA and ensure no one is left behind in the global effort to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic, the Elton John AIDS Foundation and Gilead Sciences have partnered together in a ground-breaking initiative called RADIAN. RADIAN aims to meaningfully address new HIV infections and deaths from AIDS related illnesses in EECA through focussed action, investment and resourcing to improve the quality of prevention and care for people at risk of or living with HIV in the region.
RADIAN is a natural evolution of the existing collaboration between the Foundation and Gilead in the EECA Key Populations fund, which gave the organisations a greater understanding of the urgent needs in EECA and the necessary experience to respond.
RADIAN is a collaboration between Gilead Sciences Europe Limited and Elton John AIDS Foundation. Funding is provided through grants which are assessed and administered by the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Gilead has no involvement in the selection and assessment of award applicants and winners.
Applications to implement Model Cities in Almaty are now open
The programme will support innovative approaches, including new models of care and expanded prevention and healthcare programmes, led by groups who are on-the-ground and part of the community.
The first RADIAN ‘Model City’ will be Almaty, Kazakhstan’s largest city. The RADIAN Model Cities Fund is looking to support programmes centred around existing health system infrastructure that deliver measurable impact in the response to HIV in Almaty. We encourage organisations who share our vision of significantly improving the quality of care for PLHIV, addressing new HIV infections and AIDS deaths in Almaty to apply for grant funding.

Best practices and learnings from the local implementation of RADIAN over the next five years will be used as a blueprint towards creating change across the region.
